The otter box doesn't sound that great.

There's a company that makes clear bags specifically for the ipad but I can't remember the name right now. I remember watching a video that shows them using them in the kitchen while cooking.

You might be referring to Cleverwraps.

I have not tried these, so I don't know how well they work.

Hi there,

If you are traveling somewhere soon I would seriously consider trying this too. The iPad is light, lasts a very long time on the battery and packs very powerful features. Whether it is work, entertainment or getting local information the iPad does it all.

Well about Ipad case, I think **************/FK5e3D would be a better choice.

Happy Vacations.

I would not use a freezer bag. I've witnessed at least one smartphone get fried that way.

So are the clever wraps or dry case breathable ? Otherwise what's the difference fom ziplock? And if breathable then wouldnt that also let moisture in?

This KungFu Panda hard ipad 2 case would be great, so special. As KungFu Panda film is coming soon, how cool to carry this KungFu Panda hard ipad 2 case.
nice cases, but in no way address the OP's questions.

I use the Incase Travel Kit plus with the iPad in a CEO Hybrid. Ipad fits perfectly into the incase even with the hybrid and will has room to store the keyboard, charger, cables, and a MF cloth.

Perhaps I am a simpleton, but can you share why devices fry in a non-vent zip lock bag and not in the non-vented plastic bags with interlocking mechanism that keeps dirt and water out?
Thanks

iPads suck to read in the sun...leave it in the room.

Hope that clarifies.

Cheers.
sure does. thanks.

I'm looking for something to protect from small moisture, tanning oil while reading at beach/poolside. zip bag i guess would be ok for this. ?

certainly looks like a zip lock would do same, i was just showing other options similar to the clever wrap earlier in the thread.

That's what I'm doing when I go this summer. Too much to worry about keeping it protected!
